After reading the Bible, I felt as if it is a replica of Sanatan Dharm. The sermons of Jesus give a glimpse of a Hindu saint.
In the Hindu philosophy, human body has been considered as the supreme temple, similarly, in the Bible, Jesus said in Yohana 2:21, “But Jesus said about the temple of his body.” Apart from this, when we read the following sermons, it feels as if a Hindu saint is preaching.
Mathew 5:27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
Mathew 5:31 “It has been said, ‘Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.’ But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, makes her the victim of adultery.
Mathew 6:1 to 6:6 -
6:1 “Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.
6:2 “So, when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.
6:3 & 6:4 But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
6:5 And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.
6:6 And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Jesus used to say not to worry about tomorrow.
Apart from the above, he has said the following things on the creation of the universe:
Yohana 1:1 to 1:5, “1. In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2. He was with God in the beginning. 3. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
Similarly, there are many other principles that match with the ‘Sanatan Dharm’. Just like all other religions, Christians also broke all the rules of their religion. With respect to marriage, they have crossed all the limits. It is common to marry and divorce three to four times. The thing that was called adultery by Jesus, that principle has been completed forsaken by them. The extent to which the religious principles have been violated in the Western world has not happened anywhere else. In India, to a certain extent, religious norms are being practiced. Even though people of the world may call us orthodox, our country is in a very good state with respect to character.
If peace could be possible merely by material advancement, then there should have been complete peace in the Western world but on the contrary, there is complete unrest in those countries. In our country too, in big cities, where they are copying the West, there is more restlessness. In those parts of India which are still safe from this, life is more peaceful. Nowadays, millions of people from Western countries are coming to India only in search of peace.
